Chapelle

by: California Greg [ GREGCLOSECOMBAT ]

Introduction:

Plus Model have been busy with releasing diorama accessories; here again with the quality of packaging and products that we have come to expect from them.

The review:

One complete Chapel (shrine) is included. I painted the cut away portions on this item red. The cuts are easy enough to perform. The biggest limitation is the painting itself. The detail is not engraved for the picture and there are no decals, so your painting better be up to par. On the positive side, you could paint different religious figures there to make it unique, or maybe just add a cross as another option for this area.

Conclusion:

The chapel (shrine) overall is a nice little item if you can get a religious symbol painted or adding a cross to the small area.

SUMMARY
Highs: Quick and easy to build with good quality and detail of the resin. There are few 1/48 accessory items on the market currently so these are more than welcome additions.
Lows: The chapel does not include decals and the painting may be difficult.
Verdict: The chapel will make for unique and interesting scenes.

My father was a model junkie of all scales, and he got me started when I was little (5 to 8 years old maybe?) doing some Monogram Snap-tite kits. Then at 8 years of age, I practiced the art of fireworks and BB gun marksmanship on those kits. When I was 25, he gave me his 1/48 unbuilt Bandai kits t...
